There’s nothing that soccer fans love more than a homegrown hero. Greenwood began playing with Manchester United’s underage teams when he was six years old. In 2019, he emerged as one of the club’s most exciting prospects. He scored a clutch of important goals and fans had high hopes for his future (via Daily Express).
Then police arrested him on charges of sexual assault and rape. Horrific video footage went viral of Greenwood threatening to kill his alleged victim. The team suspended him while the court case rolled on. In the end, the loss of a key witness prevented the case from continuing. United cut him under pressure as the dream turned into a nightmare.
